Downstairs is the main line, but phone only no broadband. The phone line from the street is connected to the house just outside our bedroom window. From here I can see the two lines coming out of the box: one for downstairs and one travelling a couple metres through the wall for us.
I've just had a brainwave hence the midnight post: a Telecom rep was door knocking on our street recently and said our exchange had recently been upgraded, so my question is if I were to look at signing up with them for broadband only could I pay the Connection & Wiring fee and have the technician come to the house and rewire our second line to join up with the first line, effectively turning it back into one phone line??? So there'd be no difference to the phone service downstairs yet we could get the broadband service upstairs?
We only need broadband don't need a phone upstairs, but I if I can get better and cheaper service from rewiring our line it would be perfect for us.
I'm assuming this would mean a filter would need to be placed on the phone downstairs?
